As much as I'd love to have a closet of all J. Crew & Kate Spade everything, that's not how life works when you're a college student/recent grad. And I'm OK with that because I've gotten some of my favorite items from thrift stores, vintage shops, or as hand-me-downs from my mom! Plus, you're more likely to have a one-of-a-kind piece and avoid matching someone else's outfit!
|Vintage yellow beaded beret from my mom, love it!|
One of my favorite things to wear? Blazers.
|White blazer I got in Cali for just a few bucks!|
Love them, can't get enough of them.
And at least 80% of my blazers/sports coats are vintage.
|Just got this skirt and color block blazer!|
|New blazers...every color :) to wear for work!|
They're usually $5 or cheaper at vintage shops or thrift stores like Goodwill and in great condition! They have great items for guys, girls, and for your home. I always wash/dry clean my items after getting them, though! :)
Here are some of my favorite "vintage" stores in ATL:
